Booked table at one of our favourite restaurants in Hereford. It was a quiet night but as usual the ambience was great the service first class and the food fantastic as always. We have been coming here for some time and new owners from late last year have maintained quality and service. A little jewel which if you looking for... More

We had a fantastic meal there last night. All 3 courses were excellent. Lovely busy and friendly atmosphere. Service was very good too with attentive waitresses. We congratulated the chef on our way out and will certainly be back!

This Restaurant is 'back'... Came for our Valentine's Day dinner this year and delighted to find this bijou Restaurant is back to where it was, if not better than ever. Starters - the Duck and the Baked Camembert were excellent, and the main course Venison with Savoy Cabbage and Dauphinoise Potatoes with a Red Currant jus was divine. The Chocolate... More

Had lunch here a few times, would have eaten here more often, as food is always very tasty and well presented, but it's a tiny place and usually packed at lunch- time, so you probably need to book. Arriving shortly before 3:00p.m. seems to be a good plan, as the lunch- time crowd has thinned a little. Service great (even... More

We love nice little restaurants like this. Giving this place 5 because we had a lovely night overall. Place is very nice, and wasn't crowded on the Friday night we went. Waiting staff were friendly and attentive, and the chef came out for a quick chat. Nice guy. The menu won't suit all, with only 3 main options; beef, fish... More

We enjoyed lovely smooth hot coffees, and really tasty homemade cauliflower soup which was beautifully presented. The crockery was great too.

Stumbled across La Madeleine with no prior knowledge from reading ratings. We were initially attracted by it's refreshing and welcoming French style - even when it was closed. We were intrigued enough to take the number so we could book for that evening. We were not disappointed. A small place with a carefully chosen, if limited menu. Local 'Chase elegance'... More

Went to La Madeleine for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. My lovely home made quiche came with a selection of salads, all being very tasty. Portions were generous so really felt like we got great value for our money. Service was attentive and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble! Also has a pretty courtyard garden, perfect to sit out... More

This is a beautiful place to go for supper with lovely decor and candlelight. The menu is small with three starters and three mains and two desserts but I like that they chose to have a smaller menu and do it well. I had a delicious mackerel page which was served with beetroot for starters and then a very nice... More

As a keen advocate of independent businesses my sibling recommended we go here for my Birthday evening meal. Sadly I found it all rather disappointing. The menu was extremely limited with just three starters, three mains and two desserts. I actually wasn't keen on any of the starters but ended up going for the soup which was actually very nice....
